Howdy, been a little bit...

Yeah, its been kind of like that. Work and real life has been insane since my last post. But things are looking a little more positive here over the rest of the year. I will of course be gone periodically for work, but nothing major.

So updates. What have I been doing. To be honest, not much. I went to Wargamescon, made it into the top bracket on Sunday, so I was pretty excited about that. Got best single in Fantasy, and in general had a really good time. I have always liked the effort the guys in Austin put into their convention and it is greatly appreciated. Its the one big event I look forward to every year.

I am hopeful to make some progress on a few things over the next few weeks. I have not done a nice single figure in a long long while, so I will probably do one of those. I have a couple other models to finish for some buddies of mine.

Which goes to another subject, officially, I am not doing commissions anymore. I just don't have the time. I had a gentleman ask me if I would consider working for his studio. While I was flattered, I politley, I hope, declined. To be honest, I am not trying to toot my own horn, but the reality is if I have painted roughly 3 minis in the last year, not even competition minis, just a couple hours each, I don't have time to take one anyone elses work.

That being said, my effort on my Dark Eldar has not gone unnoticed. With 5 minutes here and 10 minutes there I have gotten closer to finishing them. They are still no where near to be done, but I can put them on the gaming table and not be embarrassed.

Here is a picture taken by Frontline Gaming of my army. Thank you for posting this.

It still looks a lot like it did last year, but I finally got my halos on the vehicles. If I am lucky I can be done with this army by the fall.

So in closing, for my faithful followers, lol, expect more frequent updates and hobby progress on my figures over the rest of the year. I am going to finish up some projects, do a few competition level figures, and then possibly start and Space ork army or a Counts as Blood Angel Genestealer cult.
